Swedish Dishcloths were invented in Sweden in the 1940's and have been making their way into the mainstream for their excellent absorption. They are made from 70% cellulose fiber and 30% cotton and are a great replacement for paper towels: wiping up spills, streak-free mirror cleaning, washing dishes, etc. For best care, give them room to air. To sanitize by bringing to a boil, washing in the top rack of the dish washer, a cycle in the washing machine, or three minutes in the microwave. One cloth will last about six months.

The founder of Wet-it is originally from Sweden, where she grew up using Swedish Dishcloths. The cloths are made in Sweden (where all Swedish Dishcloths are currently made) and then distributed by Wet-it in Forest City, NC.
